Twilight Cards

The girls were playing Go Fish. On the cards there were characters that reminded them of Twilight characters....what doesn't these days? They started callind the builder, Emmett, the Pianoist Edward etc. Then they decided to make their own set of cards, using all the characters from Twilight. When they play Old Maid, it's Old Charlie, and when they play Go Fish, instead of matches you have to pair up the couples.

Little Scientist

Ky's Aunty brought her a microscope for her birthday. We decided to try it out one afternoon, and went and collected water samples from the stream and the ocean, to see if they would be different. She enjoyed playing the role of scientist, collecting her "samples" then carefully labelling each and placing them on the slides.
And the results? Well sea water, stream water and bottled water, all look exactly the same!

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
